1. Rainy Days at Disney World – No Dole Whip Line
2. Rainy Days at Disney World – Shorter Wait Times for RidesAnnual Passholders and folks that live close to Walt Disney World aren’t going to head to the parks on rainy days, but for the ones that have driven over 1,000 miles to visit like we do twice a year, we’re hanging at the parks! On rainy days (unless it’s a holiday), you’ll encounter low crowd levels and, therefore, low wait times for most rides.
3. Rainy Days at Disney World – Rainy Day Cavalcade at Magic KingdomWalt Disney World has a parade especially for rainy days in the Magic Kingdom that many folks don’t get a chance to see. Although it’s a much shorter parade than Festival of Fantasy, popular Disney characters are covered in large, covered vehicles. They wave out of the windows at the small number of Disney guests, and to be honest, we loved it. Besides, when can you walk up to any viewing area 30 seconds before the parade starts in Magic Kingdom and have a front row view? During the rain, of course.
4. Rainy Days at Disney World – Solo Photos in Front of Cinderella Castle
5. Rainy Days at Disney World – Family Photos Without “The Squint”
You know what I’m talking about: You find a Photopass Disney Castmember that is not already taking photos on Main Street U.S.A., stand exactly where he tells you, center yourselves in front of Cinderella Castle, get your photo taken, go home, race to the computer to find the sunny day squinting family. Rain= no squinty eyes. Check out the image above.
If you’re from a northern climate like we are, 80 degrees and rainy at Magic Kingdom is like a pool with a giant playground in it! We even twirled down the street in Liberty Square with our arms outstretched. You read that right. I’m not above twirling.
